Best Video Editor App Ever!! BUT...
This is by far the best video editor app I’ve ever used. I’m a new vlogger and i get the most vlog-like videos using it. It allows me to speed up or slow down my videos, add filters/ adjust brightness, contrast, saturation etc, I can also add pictures to my videos and record voice clippings in the app. There’s also a feature for adding text to the screen.
However, my biggest problem is the saving process. I make >4 minutes videos and it takes like half an hour to save videos. Sometimes after I’ve waited that long it goes off to say that ‘save failed’ and I have to do it all over again! Very frustrating. Next thing is I can only save one draft at a time so I can’t edit 2 vlogs at once or else the other one will be deleted. I also don’t like it that sometimes if I pause my editing and go do something on other apps, when I re-enter the app, all my editing has been lost. I would like to be able to use actual songs instead of just tracks and sound effects.
Lastly, it would be nice if the app noted me that I need a little more storage space BEFORE I wait almost an hour for a video to process and then I have to try clear some space and go back in the app only to find that my editing has been lost and I have to do it all over again.
Other than these things, editing my videos for my new vlog is easiest using InShot. I would recommend it to anyone.
I love this app but...
By Person 😝
I think this is one of the best, most useful apps, I have used for editing. I love making edits so this has made it easier. I think that if you guys could probably make it so we could use our own sound, from our own other videos, like Video Star, it would make it so much easier. I also think that it would make it so much easier to edit and a whole lot less annoying if you could put a transition wherever you want. Of course, some people might not like having that so you could make it so you can turn it off when you please. I can tell you I would not like to have the “new option” all the time.I would also like more options to make your videos/edits better. I think a great idea would be adding options to click and hold on to add an effect whenever and where ever you like, like Musically. Lastly, the most annoying thing ever on this app, is that when adding a transition it messes with the sound and time. Couldn’t you add the transition in without messing with the time or sound? I, also, absolutely, HATE the fact that there is no freaking back arrow. It takes about 10 times as slow as it should be taking because I make one small mistake and have to start all over. Thank you for the time, I absolutely love this app and would definitely request this to anyone looking for an editing app.
Seems a little sneaky
By Lyzzie K.
I have used this app for years and recently decided to try some of the new filter packs and effects they offer within the app. While they present it to you as if you’re buying the packs individually at $1.99 and move the aforementioned packs to the top of line when you go to filters to add to videos.......making it appear as if you’ve purchased, and can freely use said filter pack. However, I found out today when looking at my Apple transaction history for the month, that they actually charge you (without a second authorization of the “purchase”) EACH TIME you use a filter from the pack that you had been led to believe you had purchased in full. Not criminal, but a little too sneaky. Although the app has always worked well for my videos, this seems too strange an issue to continue using the app and hope they find a way not to confuse or trick their customers into spending two dollars at a time in the future. Or perhaps, Developer, you could add a feature where the user continues to have to authorize said purchases; every other app I have for every other purchase I make through them requires a fingerprint or at least a “YES” before the transaction can be completed. No more sneaky transactions! This happened 3x before I called Apple Support and they explained to me what the app was doing with my money. Be careful!
Great easy to use However....
This app is very amazing almost perfect....
I am learning new things i this one. I do love that I can put in text and add what I need this has made it easy... if you could maybe add a feature ( I may not have figured this out yet) to only add music for a section of the edited part that would be super awesome! This app is easy to use to so beginners who have no idea would definitely be able to figure it out Great job on the Easy Interface!
I personally feel that there could be a couple more color effect ..... the yellow look and blue doesn’t do it for me. Just an example seafoam twilight ivory those kind of color nothing to high class but just more color effects not quite so yellow♥️
I also don’t like the fact that if your editing something and you get a call or text and answer, when you go back you have to start all over again.... yes if you save before you leave your fine but I did notice this not a fan.... other then this I love the App the small bugs are just that and once that’s done really nothing to blink an eye about😉 Thank you for a great app much appreciated❣️
The best video editing app on the app store
By Aloe Vera Man
I’ve been using InShot for about 2 months to edit my gameplay videos and the occasional meme and it has worked wonders. The app allows you to combine separate videos with an in between animation, adjust speed, add filters, extract audio, and a lot more with not many limitations. There is also a “premium” version, but unlike the many other video editing apps, it is not necessary. It only adds a few more filters and takes away a small “InShot” watermark. Other apps make most their features “premium” only, locking half the app behind a pay wall, so that automatically puts InShot at the top of the list.
My only issue with the app is that it lacks an option to manually animate text and photos. As of right now, there are only preset animations, which work great, but are very limiting. Of course, no other video editing app really has this and the preset animations do work well enough for more simple edits, so this is more of a nitpick.
All in all, the app works great and is not bogged down by its premium, which I purchased and is VERY cheap compared to other apps.
My favorite editor
Although the app has a few glitches with the music, some people are way too critical. This app is not confusing, my favorite update that they had was the multiple drafts one. I loved that ic oils work on multiple videos at once. I 500% recommend this app to anybody that finds editing fun. The reason why I only gave 4 stars is because that you can’t use any other music except their’s, you have to pay to get the really cool filters, and the glitches with the music. Sometimes music won’t play when you play your vid. Just for a few to new people using this. 1. Always tap the button to get new stuff, you have to pay for MOST of them, but you can just watch short ads to get a few. 2. Explore everything when you have time, if you explore the buttons you’ll find cool stuff you didn’t know about. 3. (This isn’t really a tip) you’ll find that you’ll catch on pretty easy. Let’s cut this short and just say this is my #1 editor, that’s how good it is. I’m not a fan of peachy but I hope you come out with more awesome apps in the future.
Like the app functionality but locked up a lot
By Jason Tucker
This app is by far my favorite when dealing with photos and resizing them. I run into an issue where I press the add image button and the app will freeze, I’ll wait 3-5 mins (actual minutes, I’ve timed it) and it will finally unlock a s let you add the image. I’ve seen lots of bug fixes over the years but this one issue with images taking forever to be added drives me crazy.
Devs, it seems that I’ll add a new photo to my camera roll and I want to crop or resize it or make a vertical photo square and want to add blur in the background. I’ll tap the add image button and the grid of images appear but it just stalls and didn’t accept input. I do use iCloud for phot storage and I know it may be a slight delay but I’m on fast WiFi with 1 GB network connect and it will be slow like this. I’ve found that if I fast switch to another app wait and switch back it sometimes unlocks. I’ll quit the app wait and then open the app again and it may allow me to add the image, usually it takes 2 times to get it working.
Great fancy features, not great for beginners
By MaryKay consultant
I’m a new vlogger and like things to be very self explanatory as I don’t have the patience to sit and figure out contraptions and do dads, I just prefer things to be straightforward and simple so I can move on. It seemed like everything else was right in my face to use except for cutting and deleting. For me being a beginner it was not easy for me to figure out the editing at all. I have an easier time editing videos on my phone than I do this app. It’s very extra and drawn out and frustrating, especially if you don’t have the patience and aren’t a millennial. It seemed like no matter how much I played around with it and no matter how much dragging I did or button pressing or delete this and precut that it just wasn’t doing ANYTHING I needed it to do. So clearly there’s something I don’t get but for me to have to go through all this when it’s already much easier on my phone is just a bit much. I’m already a bit over it, and hopefully I figure it out eventually but right now it’s just a frustrating mess and I’m not a big fan. If you don’t already know how to edit videos this app will be quite difficult to figure out. Just saying
I really love this app for so many reasons—firstly, it’s so wickedly quick. Like, iMovie always takes a bajillion years to import or export anything. Inshot imported three two minute long videos by the time i blinked. Also, it’s just majorly convenient. The only thing I think I wish there was (and it might exist without my knowledge already) is the ability to adjust the thumbnail timing like on iMovie—for example, if I’m adding text to a twenty second clip, I can pinpoint the millisecond I want to add my text in very easily. However, if my film is five minutes long, it’s very, very difficult. The little bubble that indicates my text also becomes almost a barely visible sliver because it’s so small. The last thing is adding an option for two or more videos to play side by side or within the same frame. I want to show progress videos for figure skating and do side by side comparisons but I don’t think that’s possible in this app (or maybe it is and I’m dumb). Even so, five stars without a doubt!
Best Video Editor I Have Tried
By Alayna's Shadow
This is by far the best video editor you can ever possibly get. The layout of the app is simple and almost anyone can understand it. I love the new text animations, the transitions, the stickers you can add to make the video look adorable😍 (if you could make it so the stickers have transitions too like the text and if you would make it possible to import GIFs as stickers, it would greatly improve the app), the video filters and effects you can add, the ability to reverse, slow down, or speed up the video (when I do slow down and speed up, sometimes the audio messes up sometime during processing), the array of sound effects and music supplied, and the way it is possible to import your own music or sound effects.
Overall a very well put-together app and definitely worth checking out. If you are a beginner to editing and you have a low budget, this is the best app to choose from on a mobile phone that I have tried. Would definitely suggest this app!
